For me, the end of the finals always signified the wonderful opportunity to do better next year. I always vow to start studying earlier and prepare well in advance, so after finals season I find the best tools to help me study next year. I don’t want to go into the followthrough on my vows…

We’ve already seen 15 Essential iPad Apps For Students here on Appstorm, but I’d like to look at this from a different angle. There are an abundance of note taking apps, planning apps, organizers, and so on, but at the end of the day we have to sit down and learn things (terrible isn’t it?). Let’s look at some apps that can help with the learning process itself. (more…)

Dribble is a truly special website. It doesn’t really do anything, it just shows out-of-context designs uploaded by the designers themselves, snippets of logos and interfaces.

Despite this, it is one of the most captivating sites out there due to the sheer beauty of the content. While it may not be of much material use, Dribbble is a great source of inspiration – impacting our lives and work indirectly.

Courtside is a free iPad app which connects to Dribbble and shows you the latest/best content from the site – iPad style. But, is it any good?

The ubiquity of the internet and availability of a high speed connection wherever you are has undoubtedly been an awesome boost for tourism! A huge number of apps have surfaced that try to bring all relevant local information to your fingertips.

One smart way of doing this is to basically tie up Google Maps – a standard compendium of geographical data – and Wikipedia – a standard compendium of knowledge about places. This is exactly what Wikihood has done, let’s see if it’s any good.

Available for the iPad, iPhone, and the desktop (on most systems via Adobe Air), if you also like ambient music and sounds, this app will be right up your alley! Let’s dive in.

If you do any sort of writing (from programming to fiction), chances are that you end up typing many things over and over again. Basic HTML 5 structure, rounded corners for the top left and bottom right in CSS, multiple signatures you use in emails, etc., can all be shortened to a few keystrokes with the help of TextExpander.

It’s the most useful tool that you’ve never heard of! And if you have, you’ll want to read on and find out whether it’s a worthy addition to your iPad…

PlainText is a plain text editor, one of many in the App Store, but due to its simplicity, ease of use, and feature set, it stands out among the crowd.

The app allows you to write in a clean, distraction free environment and comes with TextExpander and Dropbox support, which means it can easily become a key part of your workflow.

If you’ve dabbled in web development before, you know it’s a pretty involved activity; using the browser, a development application, an image editor, references, and more. It’s hard to imagine how this could be transferred on to an iPad, where you work in single window apps exclusively.
